About Soluble & Insoluble Fiber
BarnDad's FiberDX and BarnDad's FiberDX German Chocolate Shake are unlike any other fiber products on the market. While most popular fiber products contain a high amount of just soluble fiber, BarnDad's products takes it to the next level nutrition with a combination of soluble and insoluble fiber, to provide an easier way to get the essential nutritional daily needs. The question is, what is the difference between soluble and insoluble fiber?
Soluble fiber is the main ingredient in most of the popular fiber products on the market. When mixed into a liquid, soluble fiber will dissolve and swell, becoming a gel-like substance. Soluble fiber attracts water in the system and slows the digestion process, delaying the emptying of the stomach and preventing overeating by making you feel fuller longer. Soluble fiber also assists in weight management by making fats and sugars "less available" for absorption in the gastrointestinal. Soluble fiber reduces cholesterol and triglycerides, helping to prevent heart disease. For individuals who have diabetes, soluble fiber reduces insulin spikes and helps control of blood sugar levels. With soluble fiber helping to control blood sugar levels, it is also providing "fuel" necessary for proper body function and creating consistent energy throughout the day.
Insoluble fiber is the fiber that has been given a bad reputation for all the wrong reasons. When mixed into a liquid, insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water. Insoluble is the "gut healthy" fiber that gives your body a "cleansing effect" by helping waste to pass through the gastrointestinal tract and keeping you regular. Insoluble fiber prevents constipation and adds bulk to the stool, allowing ease when using the restroom and also making it easier from those who suffer from conditions such as IBS and diverticulitis. Insoluble fiber also reduces the risk of colon cancer by speeding up food and waste through the intestines, creating a "sponge" to clean out all the toxins in the bowel and provides less time for toxins to be absorbed into the system.This information has not been evaluated or approved by the FDA and is not necessarily based on scientific evidence from any source.
